A day at home…

…. means….

(i) …. a bargain…


….the curtains for our new home which original cost was around 70 € per meter and which I paid 9 € per meter. Since I learnt to sew straight seams (see my totes….) I thought that I could be able to sew courtains too. I was sweating cold because I knew that curtain fabric costs a lot but did’t even dream it could be so awfully lot…. the average price is around 70 – 80 € per meter… So when the owner of my Mum’s favourite fabric store showed me this job lot I bought it immediately. Well, not exactly immediately because I wasn’t sure if I was doing the right thing so I called my Mum in law…. and when she told me that I will never ever find a better price for curtains of good quality as the above one, I purchased them in the very moment I stopped talking with her. I had to call her instead of asking my Mum because I need an ally with my Big man who has no idea about home decor prices and to whom 120 € for courtains could sound so very expensive…. Yeah, you understood it right, the whole house curtains for 120 €…. I’m very satisfied and will buy more in a second time if I’ll find a similar bargain. It’s always a good thing to have some spare curtains at home, don’t you think?Can’t wait to sew them and put them on!!!

What do you think, my friends? Do you like my purchase and do you think I did the right thing!! I have never ever bought curtains before so I feel I did well and can’t deny that I feel quite proud of myself πŸ™‚

(This blog is becoming a self celebrating place…hmmmm…. it’s high time to calm down a bit…. )

(ii) …. a secret crochet project….


…. nothing to tell about that except that a single ball of yarn can give a big satisfaction…. and yeah, the light blue has a reason…. but more when the gift will be at its recipient’s…. πŸ™‚

Off to packing my stuff!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Enjoy πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ (…… because I really did….)







Before saying you goodbye till next time I’d like to invite you to have a look on a nice blog about which I’ve already written before…

It’s a blog run by a very talented friend of mine, Katia. We talked about sharing her talent outside Italian boundaries and I offered my help in translation. She’s a real crafty tornado and I’m so happy that I can show you her creations! So, please, just have a look and enjoy yourself!!Β  ❀ ❀ ❀
